Review: Intervention by Terri Blackstock


Intervention by Terri Blackstock
Zondervan / 2009

About the book:

It was her last hope---and the beginning of a new nightmare Barbara Covington has one more chance to save her daughter from a devastating addiction, by staging an intervention. But when eighteen-year-old Emily disappears on the way to drug treatment---and her interventionist is found dead at the airport---Barbara enters her darkest nightmare of all. Barbara and her son set out to find Emily before Detective Kent Harlan arrests her for a crime he is sure she committed. Fearing for Emily's life, Barbara maintains her daughter's innocence. But does she really know her anymore? Meanwhile, Kent has questions of his own. His gut tells him that this is a case of an addict killing for drugs, but as he gets to know Barbara, he begins to hope he's wrong about Emily. The mysteries intensify as everyone's panic grows: Did Emily's obsession with drugs lead her to commit murder---or is she another victim of a cold-blooded killer? In this gripping novel of intrigue and suspense, bestselling author Terri Blackstock delivers the up-all-night drama that readers around the world have come to expect from her.

My thoughts:


I had heard so many great things about Intervention and thought I'd really enjoy it. Even though I didn't enjoy it as much as I had anticipated, I did still like it. There were times I got somewhat bored with the story, but once I got about halfway it became more interesting to read.


One reason why I think this wasn't really that interesting is because it deals with drug addictions, so I had a hard time connecting to the story - that, and it wasn't that suspenseful to me until towards the end. I liked the romance story and because of that I'd like to read the next book in this series.


Overall, I liked Intervention and found it to be a good one-time read. There are many people who loved this book, though, so if it sounds interesting to you, I'd say give it a try.
